Gaelforce 10k Kippure | 16 April 2023

Go wild in Wicklow! The first event of the Gaelforce 10k Trail Run Trilogy takes place in Kippure Estate - 240 acres of untamed, wonderful Wicklow countryside, only 30 minutes’ drive from Dublin city. The route takes in Kippure mountain and its surrounds, on a mix of wide woodland tracks and narrow soft turf tracks, with panoramic views and beautiful scenery all around.



Gaelforce 10k Bray Cliff Run | 12 August 2023

Go wild by the seaside! This is the second event in the Gaelforce 10k Trilogy. This trail run on narrow cliff paths, up over Bray head and down onto the stony beaches along the Bray promenade, this route has dramatic and expansive views over the Irish Sea. This is an evening event, so you’ll be charging through the finish line as the sun sets over the Wicklow coastline.




Gaelforce 10k Howth Summit | 07 October 2023

Go wild in the city! This is the final event of the Gaelforce 10K Trilogy. Starting at Howth Castle, you'll run on grassy tracks, rough trails and sealed roads. The looped route right to the top of Howth Summit and back takes in the sweeping views over Dublin Bay. Find out why Lonely Planet calls this one of its ‘Epic Runs of the World’!



Run 1, 2, or all 3

This trilogy of scenic 10k trail runs is perfect as a first taster of trail running or as a totally different experience for seasoned urban runners.

Challenge yourself

These are trail running events which means that the ground can be steep, uneven, stony, slippy and dangerous at certain points. But the challenge is always worth it. Routes are marked with marshals at key points, and we have a safety team on hand. We ask all competitors to take personal responsibility for their safety and for the safety of others.
